Goodbye blog.

Soooo, I'm quitting.
Well not really, the plan was always to record year 25 so I could remember it when I was 125, and I'm now almost 26 so I think enough life has been tracked. Also I am kind of lazy and it turns out blogging is much harder than I anticipated. You mean I have to take pictures of that? And upload them? AND write witty things? I'd much rather watch tv and read other people's blogs. So that's what I'm doing - finally updating my google reader, AND (excitement!) joining twitter. So if you are still interested in the random 140 character thoughts that pass through my head, you can find me there at ctt916.
It's been fun blog, maybe we'll meet again some day. Until then, GOODBYE BLOG! Stay classy, planet earth.

Sorry, more plant posts.

Have I explained to you my obsession with woolly pockets? I desperately want to hang plants on my walls. It looks so cool! And Marie would not be able to chew on them!

More pictures here.

I am curious though about how they hold up, and I don't really have 200 dollars to spend on plant wall hangers. But in my fun new apartment (!!), I will no longer have a balcony, so I need a way to figure out how to keep up my vegetable obsession while avoiding chompy cat teeth. So we'll see...

Since I discovered recently I DO have more than one reader plus mom - has anyone else had any woolly pocket experiences? Do they leak? Aren't they AWESOME LOOKING?

Date saved.

Hey look a picture that is not of my garden! JWill's Save the Dates are out!

Mmm texty.

Jess and I designed them on photoshop and then printed them through Vistaprint for a total of about 50.00 for 100 postcards. Hooray!

hello again.

Well, I'm definitely not dead. And hopefully on the mend! But I have been sicky and whiney so excuse the lack of anything up here. It would have just been mopey anyway :)

But hey! A little garden update to tide you over! (one reader and mom).

Lookat that! And so far I have managed to not kill the lettuce (but oh have I tried!) and everything else is growing along well except the cilantro. But that was the aphids fault!

Salad starters

Yay spring! Yay garden! Yay green!

This year's crop includes tomatoes, green peppers, lettuce, strawberries, spearmint, cilantro, basil, and parsley. Let's see if I can keep them all alive long enough to make some delicious salads.

So far I've only managed a few measly strawberries and I'm still anxiously awaiting buds on the tomatoes and peppers. But seriously just looking at all that green just makes me happy. Can you believe it's almost summer?

Waking up is not my favorite

I think everyone who knows me knows this. But if I have to do it, I might as well do it in style. My old college era alarm clock served me well, but was kind of bulky (it had a CD player - can you believe it?) and I was having trouble keeping it set to any reliable radio station because the cat sat on it in the mornings. She's kind of a jerk. So here's the new addition - small, nice number font (shut it, that was important) and sort of mod looking.

But for some eye candy, here were the other (if I had a million dollars) contenders:

Ok so admittedly, this first one is cheaper than the one I bought, but I also figured it would be less reliable at waking me up. But so cute!

Ok and for these last two I would need an iPod first. I know - GET WITH THE TIMES CINDY.

A going away bouquet

Made out of Heritage Preservation resources for a buddy who's moving on up.

Best wishes Mary!
